- Multi-day mountain expeditions, backpacking and wild camping takes you into remote and mountainous areas, with the potential for adverse weather conditions. The walks will include uneven ground, rough and mountainous terrain, stream crossings as well as a number of steep ascents and descents. We will also be camping overnight in a tent in the mountains!
- A reasonable level of fitness is required as you will be walking across mountainous terrain carrying a rucksack with your overnight gear, equipment and food (approx. 12 - 15kg). You can reduce the weight of your rucksack by sharing a tent and some kit.
- Choice of 1-person or 2-person tents, so you don't have to share.
- We will walk about 10 km (6 miles) per day, although this will vary with each expedition according to condtiions.
- There will be rest stops throughout the day, as well as 30-mins for lunch.
- Mark Reid is an experienced Mountain Leader. Mark has walked over 15,000 miles of footpaths throughout the North of England over the last decade and knows the British mountains well. Since 2007, we have taken over 700 groups out walking in the hills (over 5,500 people).
- Wild Camping: In England and Wales, all land is privately owned and landowner permission is required to camp on private land. Wild camping is permitted on certain areas of common land on Dartmoor, and it is also permitted in Scotland as long as you follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. In reality, wild camping high amongst the mountains of Snowdonia and Cumbria is a tolerated tradition as long as it is undertaken responsibly.
- Do's and Don'ts: obtain permission if possible; camp high amongst the mountains away from paths and popular areas; arrive late, leave early; leave no trace; no fires; take ALL rubbish out with you; small group sizes; respect and protect the environment.
- Part of the attraction of valley, hill and mountain walking is the challenge of tackling different terrains, landscapes and weather conditions. Every effort is made to minimize potential hazards; however, the very nature of hill and mountain walking involves a certain level of unavoidable risk of accident and/or injury. By taking part in this activity, you are aware of and accept these risks.
